HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Boscombe and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Boscombe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Boscombe property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should rain have on a Boscombe home, and does our Boscombe chartered surveyor mention it? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which heavy rainfall has on homes in Boscombe is ignored. If you have only visited the new home in good weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that gutters are damaged include rotten roofing elements. Poor drainage can lead to hazardous mould.

Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a cottage with Slate walls. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone to Totternhoe Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects such as deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled property in Boscombe. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the attic could be an issue. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our Boscombe surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Boscombe houses in good condition can still be subject to problems like mould. From collar beams to purlins, the whole roof should be investigated. Your surveyors in Boscombe may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Boscombe, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Boscombe builder with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.
